2020 Classroom SOLSC
At the start of April, students around the world began the journey of storytelling, connecting them to each other, teachers, and families in important and meaningful ways. Students are writing during this historic month of April, as we all live history through a global pandemic. Storytelling is not only an engaging way for us to connect with each other―it can also be a path to healing. There is solace in writing.
Students are now writing into week three of the 2020 Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge. If you are a teacher, parent, or guardian and would like to have a student join the Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge, it’s not too late! Join us today and help your students share their writing.
Whether you are participating as a student, teacher, parent, or guardian, you are invited to read and comment on this beautiful student work in the Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge 2020 Padlet.
